Important Information for All Meets

  • After school meets are optional for grade 3, 4 and 5 students.
  • Students attending must have a signed permission form on file at the school office.
  • Each parent is responsible for arranging transportation to and from district meets for their own child.
  • Due to the large number of participants, students must be supervised by their parent or parent designate.
  • Students should meet their parent / caregiver in their prearranged pick-up spot, to travel to the meet.
  • The first race will begin at approximately 3:30 p.m. The order of running events will change each week. At our first meet our grade 3's will begin, followed by grade 4's and then grade 5s. Usually the boys run first; i.e. grade 3 boys followed by grade 3 girls, etc.
  • When arriving on the field, look for the Keating sign to find our group.
  • When all runners have arrived we will do a team warm-up.
  • Runners should bring along a water bottle (labeled please!) as no water fountains will be available in the park.
  • Washrooms are available at the park. students should use the washroom before leaving the school as time is limited.
  • Extra clothing for before and after the race is a good idea.
  • Please leave your child’s blue Keating team shirt in the bin by our sign before leaving the park following the race.
  • Students are reminded to come to the meeting at 1:40 p.m. (little recess) each Wednesday to pick up their team shirt.
  • Please aim to be to the park at 3:15 p.m.
Parent helpers needed!
Each school has been asked to provide 10 marshals for each race. Volunteers will be assigned a position along the route to help direct student runners. If you can help us in this way, please let Mrs. Lee know.  Many thanks!

Once again, we thank you for your support. See you Wednesday!
